1988 wasn’t that great. The Mets lost to the Dodgers in the NLCS.
Don’t read the comments!
Well, at least the Internets give you the time. Speaking of which, she doesn’t even have a clock.
Pig, you should have stopped after the first 2 comments.
I was only four years old back in ‘88. The only plus thing about it that I recall was the birth of my mother’s second-born grandnephew.
Internet killed the telephone star!
how does she get out of that house?
Her dial telephone was old technology even in 1988.
She can’t tell the time because she’s too busy gabbing with people like Pig!
Pig step away from the Debbie Downer pills …. Croc Power !
“…but most of the people on the internet just said you were obviously fake and that there’s no such thing as a Time Lady”.
She was quite attractive when she was younger.http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-fujokoRlKxc/UVvfZXogDsI/AAAAAAAAUy0/H-PkjfdSoEg/s1600/Lalla-Ward-as-Romana-romana-ii-10355871-290-400.jpg
Glad I was born in the late 90s.
There is also the fact that the internet updates our devices knowledge of what time it is, so they don’t have to call her.
I remember having to listen to a commercial before I would be given the time on the phone line…
She wouldn’t give me the time of day.
Hey, pig, you were doing OK, but then The Internet said #STFU. #TheOtherWhiteMeat
She was around until September 2007, apparently. https://medialoper.com/at-the-tone-the-time-lady-will-be-gone/
I won’t even bother to comment about this.
Time Lady just joined the Navy. Call 202-762-1401. (Actually, that’s Fred Covington’s voice. He’s been dead since 1993, but it’s probably the most outstanding example of technological immortality outside the Internet. Or you can call WWV at 303 499-7111. That’s always been John Doyle. Still alive, I believe.)
Have some POP-CORN, if you have the time.
At the tone, the time will be………RIP
Internet commenters: 2% brilliance, 99.5% idiots. Except for us. And yes, the math works. If you don’t understand that you’re an uneducated moron. And your mother mainlined Jolt Cola. I require 15 links proving otherwise or you’re a doo-doo head. ;D
She is a hussy: she puts out ALL the time.
That’s the year I was born
He must be reading Rat’s comment. She wants to go back to 1988 to make sure Rat cannot come into existance, either by eliminating his family line, or making sure Pastis chooses a different career.
There is no truth anymore. There is only public opinion—and that is constantly changing.
Gahan Wilson drew a cartoon of an old woman with a bell and little hammer, calling out each minute. I went looking for it and now I have a whole page of his cartoons to scrutinize. I’ll be occupied for the rest of the day.
A lot of folks who look for confirmation within the Internet and all the Social Media platforms only find condemnation from the ignorant fools who don’t even know them.
There’s an interesting bit on “the time lady” in the original novel “The Andromeda Strain” (small spoiler — same lady does the time for self-destruct count-down at Wildfire)
Buy an “atomic” clock or dial up WWV on short wave. (Or just ignore the whole thing. I sometimes forget what day it is)
And these were just the comments on GoComics …
I, as a worker bee, and to get from SE WI to Indy for meetings. To depart in time, I had to call there for the time, but they had no time voice response unit, so I called a bank. Indy was not only in some other time zone, but they also didn’t change to DST, like Phoenix. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. (Yes I thought not changing to DST was the brightest idea and must have been handed down to them by the Creator.)
Cartoon-Boy! Stop beating up on Time Lady! It’s bad enough that she lives all alone in the frickin’ desert and is out of work after such a noble career of selfless service!
Respect to Pig for trying to help….
Poor time lady
